Het verzameld breiwerk van Loes Veenstra, uit de 2e Carnissestraat.

Loes Veenstra from Rotterdam is addicted to knitting. Since 1955, she knitted on and on. The production rate is higher than the bargain rate, so her house is filled with unworn, homemade sweaters. The 500 sweaters she made are portrayed in this book designed by Chris Meindertsma. Meindertsma, wanted something more with the sweaters and decided to work with art company Wandschappen organizing a tribute to Loes Veenstra and her sweaters. A sort of flashmob with locals who all wearing the sweaters of Loes. I think it's quite emotional! You can buy this book in our webshop.
